Awesome but needs optimizing!


Awesome app but since the update it's not as responsive as it used to be. The writing would follow your finger perfectly, but now there's a lag. Please fix! This app was the greatest before the update.

Crashes when I try to save to photos


I really like the app, but now I can't save to photos. How about layers in a future update?

Great app


I have always enjoyed sketching and have,for the past few years,enjoyed keeping a travel journal while on vacation or camping etc.
This app has given me a new and easy way to create fast sketches or more detailed "doodles".
I bought this app today, which took seconds to download, and within minutes I was used to the tools and interface and creating art.
Inexpensive, easy to use,impressive results some of which I emailed within seconds of finishing!
I definitely want to join the flicker group and share some sketches.
Well done on a job well done.
